The Cornell Amateur Radio Club operates the 146.610, 2 meter repeater. This machine is located on top of Bradfield Hall, on Tower Road, on the Cornell University campus. The repeater easily covers the greater Ithaca area, with very low power required for operation. The repeater is also easily worked from “downtown” Ithaca, including inside many of the restaurants and other buildings. This is an “OPEN” repeater, and all licensed amateurs are welcome to use it (Technician or higher license is required). The repeater is licensed and operated under the club callsign as W2CXM.


The Autopatch is currently non-functional – Mostly due to the construction in the club shack. More to follow. The repeater has an autopatch for making local on and off campus calls. To use it dial:
